Some great advice, we have a good size yard so a medium dog would suit well. I am hoping this will be a friend for life so your right letting him choose may be more personal than a gift of a puppy
I hadn't even considered a shelter dog as an option, but I might take a visit and check it out
Thank you for reminding me of this option perhaps they can help each other out :)
I agree. Many excellent dogs can be found at shelters. I also agree with going for a well mannered adult dog. So much easier.

Thanks for the suggestion I will be sure to look into this breed as well
Thanks so much for taking the time to answer, a golden retriever is fast becoming my pick and I think your experience in this field is something to listen to
I have to admit the hypoallergenic is a huge bonus, thanks for the suggestion I will check them out

A golden retriever is sounding like a great option, he needs a true loyal friend
Thanks for the advice, it's been a hard long road with a lot more in front of us... Thanks for your suggestions, these breeds seem very popular
I have a huge love of this breed, so they are so on the list. Thank you
Just a quick update, we ended up buying our son a Golden retriever mixed with a border collie, this dog has a great temperament which is just perfect for my son and with limitless energy has even helped him lose weight.
thank you to all of you
